Ode to Jane Lynch

Why is it that every time I mention how much I love Jane Lynch I always have to explain who she is. “You know…the funny blonde woman from ___________”. She’s everyone’s favorite comedienne that seemingly nobody in the Tri-State area knows. Here she is, in all her glory:

Jane Lynch is, in short, the shit. We checked out “Role Models” over the weekend and once again, Lynch proved that she makes everything she’s in that much better. She plays Gayle Sweeny, the director of the mentorship center that the main characters are forced to work at. The movie, starring Sean William Scott and Paul Rudd, was indeed funny to a degree, but Lynch gave it that extra push to send it over the top. Example? See the clip below:

Lynch just has this comedic deadpan that destroys me every time. Even in Christopher Guest’s ginormous ensembles, Lynch always manages to outshine other extreme talent. Perhaps my favorite role of Lynch’s was her bout as Laurie Bohner in A Mighty Wind (“I learned to play the ukulele in one of my last films, “Not-So-Tiny Tim”.) Oh, Bohner and her “adult films.”

So check out Jane in some of these films. It doesn’t matter if she’s in it for 2 minutes or 2 hours; she’s comedic gold everytime.

Perhaps one day, I’ll finally write my Ode to Fred Willard.
